Holiday recipe for health!

The holidays are upon us and with them bring out of town guests, family and friends. Schedules for sleep, exercise and diet get turned upside down. This is a great recipe for a compromised immune system and the potential for colds and even the flu. Stay smart, treat yourself right regarding sleep and routines, and get adjusted to help keep the “Holiday blahs” from getting you down.

How to Catch a Cold
Some people seem to expect a bout with a cold or the flu each year. If you haven’t had your quota yet, here are some things you can do:

Eat a poor diet. If you want to catch a cold, make sure your body lacks the vitamins and minerals it needs. Eat lots of processed foods.

Avoid adequate rest. Deprive yourself of adequate rest. Stay up late and reduce the time you sleep as much as possible. Use tobacco, coffee and other stimulants to fool yourself into thinking you have more than enough energy.

Stop exercising. Unlike the circulatory system, your lymphatic system depends upon exercise and movement to circulate these germ-fighting fluids, so sit on the couch and stare at the TV.

Ignore your spine. Slouch whenever you get a chance and cross your legs when sitting. Also ignore your monthly chiropractic wellness checkup.

Invite stress. Stress yourself physically with extreme temperature and humidity changes. Stress yourself mentally with constant worry.

Become dehydrated. Avoid drinking enough water. Reduce the effectiveness of your natural defense mechanisms by avoiding fluids.

Of course none of us do these things intentionally but we certainly are guilty of a few. Just like good soil leads to flourishing plants, if our bodies and minds are kept in a healthy state we too can have thriving lives.

Stay healthy this holiday! Call Dr. Radice at 813-968-9411 to schedule your adjustment today and get ahead of cold season!
